The Market is Open! (Special Announcements)


Happy Market Day to all! It’s that time again!

A Special Announcement:

Many of you have been patiently waiting, but good news has arrived! Bright Moon Ranch has their chickens back on the market! They have grown huge, ranging all the way up to a 4.5 lb bird. Be sure to check out this delicious meat product under the Meat (Chicken) category.

A good read: We try not to get too political here at RCM, but I think this article by Michael Pollan (famed author, journalist, activist; Omnivore’s Dilemma, etc.) gives us insight into the importance of what RCM stands for, as well as the importance of what your continued support as customers means for the local food movement— Vote for the Dinner Party by Michael Pollan

See you Thursday!

Infrastructure Updates and a couple of problems


Hey all,

I just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up that our software was upgraded over the weekend, and inevitably there may have been some problems.

Before today you may have noticed a few missing images on the website, but this should be resolved by now.

Also, if you use Internet Explorer 9 (IE 9), the ‘Featured Items’ and ’What’s New’ carousels are unfortunately disabled currently because of some internal problems with the software compatibility. Other browers (i.e., Chrome, Firefox) should be unaffected.

None of this should scare anyone, everything is still running smoothly and will continue to do so! Just a heads up if some things look different!

Thanks for reading everyone, and thanks for your support of RCM!
